ex machina

i'm getting old. i'm not grumpy-old-man old - yet. but i'm getting old and i now have incontrovertible proof.

first, there's the 20th anniversary of ET. in my mind, ET was released awhile ago. maybe i'll even grant that it was released a long time ago, but not twenty years ago. there is only one conclusion that can be drawn from this fact. sooner, rather than later, things that seemed like they happened only yesterday will, in fact, have occurred 22, or 25 years ago. and in what will seem like a few days from now, ET will be celebrating its 30th anniversay and i'll be surprised, since it was only yesterday that it was 20 years old.

second. i swear it was the day before yesterday that i was listening to husker du and maybe it was yesterday afternoon that i bought new sugar albums [sic], but apparently it couldn't have been yesterday. indeed, i must not have followed anything bob mould has done lately. you know how i know that bob has completely dropped off my radar? because i was shocked - shocked - to find out that he has been working behind the scenes in the wrestling industry. for quiet a while.

and the third bit of evidence that i'm getting older? i found no zero humor in gene simmons' obnoxious banter with terri gross on fresh air.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
